If you're addicted to neutrals the way I was addicted to sheer watermelon gloss, suddenly switching to a bold, statement lip colour is terrifying -- feels like you're suddenly wandering in the middle of a busy city intersection trying not to get hit by rush-hour traffic. You have to learn how to carry off vibrant lips. And Learn to Wear Bright Lip Shades isn't a course you can sign up for at your local college.
But I found a solution. I trained myself, for my Lipstick Diary series. And you can train yourself too.
My seven-dayWear Bright Lip Colour Training Program makes its debut with Joe Fresh, at JoeFreshLife.com. Why? Because Joe Fresh Beauty offers a range of hot lip shades in cream and matte textures, lipstick, lipstain and lip crayons, all at amazing prices that encourage play. Plus, the nice people at Joe Fresh invited me to contribute. I'm such a fan -- how could I not?
And after seven days of bright-lipstick training, you'll say of your own vibrant-lip love, "I'm such a fan -- how could I not?"
UPDATE: Joe Fresh has completely revamped their website now that they're an e-tailer, too, so click here to learn how to wear bright lipstick fearlessly.
